The Crow Man

(Damh the Bard)

The introductory poem for the new album.

Don’t be afraid,
Don’t be afraid when I open my eyes,
And you catch my gaze.

An age has past since I was born,
As Guardian to John Barleycorn,
I have seen Albion change,
I have seen its people change,
But through it all constant I have been,
For there is nothing I have not seen.

Whispered secrets, voices long gone,
You will hear within my songs,
2 Ravens, and a murdered knight,
Lord Donald’s servant, taking flight,
Morris bells on Beltane morn,
Pipes and Drums as the Sun is born,
So raise your voices, dance, and sing,
And let the Crow Man’s tales begin…
